I've done a lot of work on outlining, character, development, etc. for my VN.

However, I noticed that a lot of threads in the Works in Progress forum have logos and images, and I haven't commissioned any yet.

Does it make more sense to post in Ideas, or WIP? Or should I try to commission some artwork first, then post in WIP? (Interestingly, some artists want to see a WIP thread first, which is kind of a vicious cycle...)

It is typical for at least a few art assets to be present in the WIP thread, however it is not a requirement. If you believe that your project belongs in the WIP section but are worried about the reception that your project thread will get without any art, I would recommend using placeholder art (i.e. CC sprites, maybe a quick logo that you throw together in an art program) to stand in. Spend time making sure that the information provided on characters and plot and such is interesting, but not an infodump.

Hi, I'm looking for some help regarding where I should post my game.

I don't have art assets yet, but I have some script and story for it already. Honestly, I've been thinking of posting this is the Ideas forum since it doesn't merit so much as a post worthy for Works In Progress since it doesn't have what it takes to be a full-fledged game yet.

But, I am wondering to what extent I can have my post in the Ideas forum as well. Am I allowed to post frequent updates there, same to as how other people do so in the WIP forum? I don't want to end up having my thread locked, so I am asking to be sure, since there is Rule#16, though I know that's just for the recruitment board only. I'm planning on replying to my own thread with progress on my work, such as if I change story plots, come up with character concepts, etc., and not just meaningless bumps, if that helps.

Thanks, all.

As long as you post actual updates and not spammy posts, there's no limit or anything to posting in your own Ideas thread. Go for it! c: I'm excited to see what you're working on - you've been posting quite a bit and it's made me curious.

Thank you for the reply, Zelan! I'll be sure to add my thread in the Ideas subforum as soon as I can set it up. ^^
